Wake Up Little Scilla

Although these scilla peruviana bulbs should be planted three or four inches deeper, they somehow ended up here at the top of the bed and they bloomed last year and it looks like they are coming up just fine this year. Their pretty purple-blue flowers are long lasting and prefer it a bit on the dry side so they are quit happy in this flower bed that is filled with succulents that require less water.

The scilla I know--sibirica, or spring beauty--is one of the earliest harbingers of spring. To see yours leafing now is oddly disconcerting. Still--may they bloom and grow for you!
